Konami Announces Free PES 2017 Trial Edition

Konami has announced a free and permanent demo for the game in the form of PES 2017 Trial Edition available on all platforms starting today

In an effort to bring more players into the fold, Konami has announced a permanent PES 2017 Trial Edition for all platforms.

The PES 2017 Trial Edition will feature some key elements from the full game in an effort to give new players a decent experience before they decide whether to purchase the game or not. There are a total of nine licensed teams in the trial version including Barcelona, Arsenal, Germany and France.

Players will be able to play their matches in Camp Nou and Neu Sonne Arena.

To ensure that those who play the PES 2017 Trial Edition have a good idea of what is to come in the future, the free to play version of the game offers full access to the Skills Training section as well as access to the PES League mode.

However, as expected there are some pretty significant limitations to the game as well. Those playing the PES 2017 Trial Edition won’t be able to access Quick Match for online play or take part in Master League and competitions such as UEFA Champions League. They will however be able to play against other players if they go for the PES League.

Speaking of which, the PES League will begin in December and players can simply register through the official website. Players will be pitched against others of similar skill in an effort to reach the top and represent their respective regions in the PES World Finals which will be held in June 2017.

The PES 2017 Trial Edition is available to download starting today on PS4, PS3 and PC while the Xbox version will be available tomorrow.

Given FIFA 17’s landslide victory over PES 2017 when it comes to sales, it is no surprise Konami is trying really hard to impress football fans as is evident by this permanent trial version which they can play for an unlimited number of hours.
